In awe
Feb 2021
we visited here and although we live here were shocked at how vast these are and the history we found out about the Mellieha people during the war. Fascinating and sad and also very proud of my ancestors.

Amazing as always
Jun 2020 • Family
Brought my third child to see my favourite place in Malta. She loved it too. My father was here during the war and was known as the Merlin king as he could fix anything on the Merlin plane!
They have a Merlin engine in here which, while I have no proof he ever worked on that particular Engine, it still made me cry,

Visited in August. Really interesting visit for an hour or so. It was only 2 euro each and there was a lot to see.

Friendly and interesting visit

Took my son to learn about the shelters, and this place is amazing! It is much bigger than expected and the people running it are super friendly and knowledgeable. The only down-side is the mannequins inside the shelters, they are bl**dy terrifying!

Main chamber

Unbelievable this is under your very feet and not know as entrance is tucked away up a side street. It stretches some distance under ground with so interesting features

Facinating insight into Maltese history
Mar 2020
we enjoyed this unusual experience . It is managed by a local music group. The gentleman who showed us round had a passion for the the air raid centre and showed us interesting artefacts , and was very informative.
We were amazed at the size of it.
The history was fascinating and a true reminder of the courage of the Maltese people.

Super interesting little find!
Jul 2019
The island has such a unique history, and this was quite an unusual find. It seems to be run by locals leading to an erratic opening schedule, but it was well worth a look if you get your timing right!

very historic

great way to realise what the maltese people went through during the war, it is quite a trek through the whole place but well worth the admission cost and the guy who is on the front door is really friendly and ask him to get his dog to do the trick with the ball

Such important preservation
Mar 2020 • Friends
Trip advisor highlighted this site to visit. A true immersion into the dedication and hard work of the Maltese people to keep their families safe during scary times. The work that went into creating these tunnels so quickly with hammer and chisel. We handled a piece of shrapnel and immediately understood the deadly nature of this heavy flying object. Very welcoming and engaging proprietor. Thank you for bringing this reality to our awareness.
